Jessie is a friend,
Yeah I know he's been a good friend of mine
But lately something's changed
It ain't hard to define
Jessie's got himself a girl
And I want to make her mine
And she's watching him with those eyes
And she's lovin' him with that body, I just know it
And he's holding her in his arms late, late at night

You know I wish that I had Jessie's Girl
I wish that I had Jessie's Girl
Where can I find a woman like that

I'll play along with this charade
That doesn't seem to be a reason to change
You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot
'Cause she's watching him with those eyes
And she's lovin' him with that body, I just know it
And he's holding her in his arms late, late at night

You know I wish that I had Jessie's Girl
I wish that I had Jessie's Girl
Where can I find a woman like that?

Like Jessie's Girl
I wish that I had Jessie's Girl
Where can I find a woman
Where can I find a woman like that

And I'm lookin' in the mirror all the time
Wonderin' what she don't see in me
I've been funny; I've been cool with the lines
Ain't that the way love's supposed to be
Tell me where can I find a woman like that

You know I wish that I had Jessie's Girl
I wish that I had Jessie's Girl
I want Jessie's girl
Where can I find a woman like that?
Like Jessie's Girl

I wish that I had Jessie's Girl
I want, I want Jessie's Girl

    Jesse has a girlfriend but his good friend doesn't see wat jesse has that he doesn't. He says he's been cool and he's funny but he wants jesse's girl to notice. Where can he find a woman like that? He wishes he had jesse's girl. He hates it when they talk cute and he knows jesse's going to be the one holding her late at night he just knows but she wont leave him he loves her and she loves him. He wants to tell her he loves her but she he see's no piont cuz she loves jesse.

    jesse has himself a girl but his friend is saying he wants her for himself and how he could never fing a girl like that for himself and he wants to tell her that she loves him but that dosn'r matter cause she's in love with jesse and that bothers him a lot and in the whole song jesse never sees that his friend has fallen madly in love with his girlfriend.
    i love this song so much and it has a cute meaning to it.

    It really isn't just about "Jesse's" girl, it's about the singer and how he sees no difference between himself and his friend and wonders why he can't find a similar love. He says the right things, he looks good but it was Jesse who got the girl. It was a the every young teenager asks himself, especially when he sees a person with similar characteristics get the girl. Women love power, confidence, money and big dicks, in that order. If you don't have any of those, then It's will be chance that shows you up in the line up of "average" guys.
